Message from Regional President Linda Davis 2020/21
Welcome to the webpage of Soroptimist International (SI) of Yorkshire, part of a global women’s voluntary service organisation. Soroptimists work to transform the lives of women and girls through education, empowering and enabling opportunities.
My name is Linda Davis and I am a member of Soroptimist International of Dewsbury and District. I became a member of the club in January 2005. I have been the Programme Action lead twice and Club President twice, once on my own 2008/9 and then as a job share 2018/19.
The theme for the next two years is SIMPLY the 5Ps.
PEOPLE To end poverty and hunger
PROSPERITY To ensure that all human beings can enjoy prosperous and fulfilling lives
PEACE To foster peaceful and just societies free from fear and violence
PLANET To protect the planet
PARTNERSHIP To work through a revitalised Global Partnership
